  • Disney "Influence" on Your Life

    So is there any little thing that you've changed in your life because of Disney?

    For me, (even though this isn't completely true) I say that I like Dasani water best because that's the kind that they sell at Disneyland.

    Ever since I started wearing a watch daily, it's always been a Disney one.

    Even though I keep more modern things out of my Victorian-style room, I still have my pin lanyard hanging in it.

    You're wrong, Brer Rabbit, why would I want to be home when I can be at Disneyland?!?

    My personality actually changed and i sorta opened up more because of Disneyland. In a weird way i guess. Just wanted to say Thanks to Abominable Snowman and Hilsbro for that! Another thing is that I MUST listen to Disneyland Ride-through songs when i drive

      I now find industrial parks, warehouses, sound stages, flat gravel rooftops with HVAC units and parapets, caged ladders, wedgwood green walls, chilller plants, and eucalyptus trees to be extraordinarily cool.

      Not joking. Disneyland's fault.

        Re: Disney "Influence" on Your Life

        It has changed my life so much I don't know where to start. A life long love for a mouse and rabbit. An appreciation for detail. Black Light stuff. A place to go to "get away from it all". Meeting people with an appreciation and love as strong as mine, and becoming friends. See animation that is just more incredible than anyone else can do. I just love Disney and especially Disneyland. It's my "Laughing Place" and my "Neverland" all rolled into one.

            Heh, definitely not something I expected to happen. People get confused when I drive by a warehouse complex and giggle, "Ooh, Disneyland!"

              I am not sure if you mean an influence from working in the park or from visiting the park. I will say that it has had an impact both positive and negative on me. On the positive side it brought me out of my shell and I made a lot of close friends that I still maintain even though I no longer work there. On a negative note I don't have a high opinion of the American Public.

                Are we talking about outside the realm of the influence it's had on my bank account? Can someone say empty? LOL

                  1) I compare every fireworks show I see to Remember and Believe.
                  2) There is more Disney artwork in my house than anything else hanging on the walls.
                  3) Disneyland has taught me the powerful draw of having a passion.
                  4)I hate Six Flags and Knotts
                  5)I landscape with a heavy influence from that of Disneyland. From the arrangement of my annuals to my holiday decorations in and out, they all mirror that influence of Disneyland.

                      funny enough the dasani water is the same for me

                        I think I now have more friends in Southern California than I do in here in Northern California. Planning out our meeting times has become a regular part of every trip and I love it.

                        I have a better car now because my old one was too rickety to trust over the Grapevine.

                          Disneyland has definately added sooo much "magic" to my life. Ever since I went there, I havn't been as grumpy, or sad, and I don't let people get to me like I used to. I took my friend with me once, and since then we have been the best of friends!!!

                            I totally agree! Someone could make one and say, "It's the same brand used at DL" and it STILL wouldn't be the same! ha!

                              The grand scope of everything Walt accomplished drives home how powerful visualization can be in transforming one's life into anything you can dream.

                                  I love Disneyland so much it has become our family's annual vacation destination. Hardly a day goes by that someone in our house doesn't mention something about one of our Disneyland memories or express how much they wish we were there! Many days throughout the year are spent planning for our next trip.

                                  We watch Disney movies, wear Disney clothes, listen to Disney music. The only recent family photos we have are the ones from the park in front of Sleeping Beauty's castle! Yep, I'd have to say there's been a little influence on our household!

                                    Disneyland has made an enormous impact on my life. Since I started to feel the Disneyland magic I can't resist going there as often as I can. I'm from San Diego but I live in New York for college and to be honest Disney has had an influence on my career as chef. I have disneyland withdraws almost every day so I have my disneyland music collection to help me along until my next trip. I always take my friends who don't understand why I love disneyland so much and when they come with me, they at least understand what I am about when it comes to disney. I always eat at the blue bayou for dinner, even if the food might not be as hoorah as people say it is, i love going for the atmosphere. There is no other experience than watching a disneyland fireworks show and fantasmic to end the night before going home

                                      Same here. Well said, Lost Boy!

                                      How can someone say with certainty what the impact of the "influence" is without a control group of yourself for comparison? You can't really. All I know is that as a youngster, seeing Disneyland on TV being built, added to, going there, meeting Walt - had a profound influence on me. I wrote this a while ago as an intro to a thesis, it indicates the depth of the "influence" on me...

                                      What is there to be said about one man's fascination for an "amusement park" and the man who created it?

                                      Whatever it would be, it is hollow without context - without understanding why and when. Our history shapes us as surely as our actions define us.

                                      My fascination for Disneyland and attachment to Walt Disney are inexorably tied to my history. Who I am today would undoubtedly be different had Walt never existed. My earliest remembrances date from age 2 or 3. Unclear images of family long gone, of places frozen in time and blurry in detail, and memories of a particular mouse.

                                      I remember Mickey Mouse. I don't remember much from that time, but I do remember the mouse. As time moved on, my acquaintance with the mouse grew. I was growing up, and learning about the world. I learned a great deal from the animation of Walt Disney. I learned a quiet, plucky little mouse - a symbol for everyman - could control his life. He could make things happen. As I grew older, I was introduced to the feature cartoons of Disney. I learned from stories of little wooden boys, of flying boys who never grew up, of young women away from home and the dwarves who take care of them, of beauteous sleepers, and kingdoms awaiting.

                                      I learned of treachery and spells cast. I learned there was great evil in the world. I learned that families can be broken, trusts can be betrayed, and death awaits the unsuspecting. I learned also that it is possible to become a real boy, that people will sacrifice themselves to save another, that sometimes when you wish upon a star your dreams really do come true.

                                      As the years passed, I learned about the struggles of man against nature. I became aware of the symbolism of these struggles and the turmoil of man wrestling with the ego and the id. This led me to discover a world of books - Jules Verne, Herman Melville, Alexandre Dumas, James Fenimore Cooper, Robert Louis Stevenson.

                                      As this great movie maker turned his skills to the new medium of television, I learned that artistry crosses boundaries. As Walt began to discuss this "Magic Kingdom" that he would build, I paid close attention. I waited for each installment to hear more word of this "Disneyland". I watched as he televised the design and construction of this dream. I watched the opening day festivities. Although I was not quite four, I knew what was going on there.

                                      I learned that with perseverance you can bring your dreams to reality.

                                        I have to admit, first and foremost, that this is the most amazing thread ever.

                                        Disneyland/WDW has had a huge impact on my life. My room is all Disney from my landyards, to my poster of splash mountain, to my life size mickey mouse. I am the dorkiest teenager because of Disney. Anytime my parents even hint that we might be taking a vacactions I immedietly suggest a Disney resort. I mention Disney so much at school and at home that it is that the point of annoyance for my parents and peers. Disney is me. It has made me happier and a feeling of being apart of something bigger than myself. Without Disney, I don't know what I would do.
